Lisa bought six of the Head and Shoulders using the BOGO coupons only – the $1 coupon beeped and was rejected. However…those three BOGO coupons scanned at $9.49 each and the entire purchase generated a $5 ecb! Totally weird!CVS has a great deal going on for the next few days with the Olay “Spend $30 get $5 ecbs” promotion. It relies on using coupons from the 7/01 P&G, which expire July 31st paired with coupons from this week’s red plum. Buy four of the Olay daily facial cloths at $3.74 each. Use the $3/2 coupon from the 7/01 P&G. Today’s P&G has a BOGO coupon for one body wash when you buy one Olay daily facial cloths, so toss that one in the mix. Here’s the kicker, though: Most cards are printing out a $3/$15 or $4/$20 coupon for the Olay from the Magic Coupon Machine! Here’s the recap:
4 Olay daily facial cloths = $14.96 less $6 from two coupons = $8.96. Body wash is completely free (except for high tax). Use the $3 or $4 coupon from the Magic Coupon Machine and you’re at $5.96 or $4.96. You will then get back a $5 ecb. for purchasing $25 worth of products. Here’s the best part: Use that receipt showing you purchased $30+ worth of Olay products and submit it for a $10 rebate. Note that this is not a new rebate offer, so if you’ve already sent in for one, you’re SOL.
Other not-so-bad deals. Head & Shoulders shampoo and/or conditioners are part of the same Spend $25 get $5 ecb promotion. Buy six at $4.99 and use three BOGO coupons from the 7/01 P&G insert (expires 7/31) plus the $1 coupon from today’s P&G. Pay $8.97 and get back $5 ecb. You’re effectively paying .66 a bottle, not FREE, but very cheap if you use this brand.
If you’re only looking for FREE, grab a bunch of the Suave products, which are part of a Spend $12 and get $4 ecb promotion. Your biggest bang for the buck would be the deodorants, which are $1 each. Buy 12, use .75 from today’s red plum to pay $3 and get back $4 ecbs. If you don’t have/want that much stink stick, choose one of the other products, like the body wash or professional shampoo. The coupons aren’t as high a value, but you’ll still be getting a bag of potential donation items for very little money.
And here’s something that would be a total waste of money to buy … but it sure is cute! This 6 load Tide sells for $3.19! I suppose it would be a perfect size for hauling to the laundromat or if someone has difficulty in lifting the larger bottles (and you can always refill it), but it’s that first $3.19 that would choke me.
